    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    *Direct spoilers for the ending*

    I really enjoyed this generally as a Bond film but really not sure what I think about the ending. Because I see three options from here:  1) they bring him back saying he didn’t actually die 2) they carry on the franchise with the new 007 who isn’t Bond 3) they start over with a new Bond and completely new plot line
